Maxing out the RAM in your iMac Pro now means that you can double the total price, before considering any other component upgrades. If this is what is available in the iMac Pro, then who knows what maxing out the upcoming 2019 Mac Pro will set you back …

The new high-end Radeon Pro Vega 64X graphics card for the iMac Pro is slightly more palatable. It is only a $700 upgrade, and comes with 16 GB dedicated video memory.

The new upgrades coincide with today’s spec bump update to the consumer iMac line, which received new processor and GPU options.
